"Momma Don’t You Worry" Children's Book Review

If you've read my last post on the importance of children’s storytime, then you know how much I love reading to my son. That's why I was happy when author, Louie Lawent, contacted me asking if I would like to review his eBook, Momma Don’t You Worry.

The story revolves around a little boy who is out shopping with his mother. Mom wants him to hold her hand while they are walking about the shopping center. The little boy being six-years old, feels that he's too big to be holding his mother's hand, and that she's just being overprotective. What is the worst that could happen, right? Soon after, the little boy is accidentally separated from his mother. Now faced with worry, the little boy must make the crucial decision on what to do next and how he can reunite with his mom.

The book is a very quick read, but does offer a fun play on rhyming words, which works for young children. I appreciate that this story teaches your child a very important (and realistic) lesson on why they should listen to their parents and keep close while in public places, as well as what they can do if ever separated by accident.

Being the protective mother of a little boy, I can really appreciate this story. My son is only a toddler, but already being a strong-willed little independent man...I can just hear it, “Mom, I’m a big boy now and don’t need my hand to be held.” Boys will be boys!

You can find the eBook on Amazon for only $1.29. (Amazon Kindle books are great, because you don’t actually need a Kindle device to read them. You can also access them from your computer, tablet, or smartphone.)

If you are looking for a simple children’s book with a very important moral to the story, then I recommend giving Momma Don’t You Worry a read.
